If you want the GUI, have you tried to just run gmplayer then when it comes up or if it comes up, open or select what file/device you want to play from ?

shouldn't that be set to something like /dev/dvd or /dev/hdc depending on which device points to your dvd player. You shouldn't mount the dvd when trying to play the dvd in mplayer. If you have the link /dev/dvd pointing to the right location then the -dvd 1 option should be enough.
